There must be a number of these  pseudo UPS emails out there containing a virus.  I've gotten several notices from Earthlink that they blocked at the server an email with something like this in them:
From: "UPS Manager Eloy Stokes" <help@ups.com> (<--- Don't click on that link!)
Subject: UPS Delivery Problem NR.2291 
 
Betcha they hook a lot of folks that might have some pkg. inbound in the UPS system.

Scads of those suckers...from lots of different companies...though I can't recall ever getting one from UPS.  Probably like those ones from banks and credit card companies..."Problem with your account"...click on this link to verify your account information.  Bound to reel a few folks in.
Don't worry about avoiding temptation. As you grow older, it will avoid you.
